14kt Gold/Rosegold & 925 Sterling Silver

14k Gold Filled: This is what ZA Kreated uses for our necklaces. 14k gold filled items are  made of a base metal (usually brass or copper) covered by sheets of gold in a mechanical bonding process. Gold Filled jewellery contains at least 5% gold by weight. This is 100+ times more gold than gold plated jewellery. The coating of gold is thick which makes it last as long as 14k gold jewellery. It is safe for most people with sensitive skin or allergies and it won't leave marks on your skin. Under normal wear and with the same care you would give any precious metal jewellery, 14kt gold filled jewellery will not flake or peel. It is far more durable than plated jewellery and can be treasured for many years.

Sterling Silver Filled: You’re probably familiar with the term “sterling silver” and the .925 stamp that usually accompanies it. The .925 represents the purity of the metal: 925/1000 parts pure silver. You are also likely familiar with jewellery that is silver-plated, which has a thin layer of silver layered over another metal.  Silver filled jewellery is a happy medium between the two.  Instead of a thin surface layer of silver, silver filled materials have a much thicker layer that won’t wear away under regular use.  The thick layer makes the metal non-allergenic as well.

14k Rosegold Filled: ZA Kreated also uses 14kt rosegold filled chains for our necklaces. 14k rosegold filled items are  made of a base metal (usually brass or copper) covered by sheets of gold in a mechanical bonding process. Rosegold Filled jewellery contains at least 5% rosegold by weight. This is 100+ times more rosegold than gold plated jewellery. The coating of rosegold is thick which makes it last as long as 14k roesegold jewellery. It is safe for most people with sensitive skin or allergies and it won't leave marks on your skin. Under normal wear and with the same care you would give any precious metal jewellery, 14kt rosegold filled jewellery will not flake or peel. It is far more durable than plated jewellery and can be treasured for many years.
